Artomatic Pix - Under Construction on 4/30/08

Here are some pix of the 12th floor of the new Artomatic space. In one short week it will be transformed! BTW - the views of Washington, DC are amazing - day or night. And, the 12th floor (as high as you can go) is the best place to see them. I'm on the 12th floor, NE, D3. My space is the last picture shown (with the white wall) before I paint it "Le Chateau" which is Glidden's way of saying brown.

See my previous Art-O-Matic post for a directions link. And don't forget to save the date for the big opening on Friday, May 9th!

100 Bowls of Compassion at the National Building Museum

I'm happy to say I'll be donating 3 framed photographs to this amazing fundraiser at the National Building Museum in May 2008. I enjoyed it so much last year and look forward to attending again this year. More info on attending the event can be found below.

100 Bowls of Compassion
Come celebrate the beauty of compassion, and support the expanding work of Miriam's Kitchen at The Seventh Annual 100 Bowls of Compassion!
Thursday, May 8
6:00 - 9:30p.m.
At the National Building Museum

"Compassion is like the moon shining on one hundred bowls of water, so that there are one hundred moons, one in each bowl. This is not the moon’s design nor was it designed by anyone else. But for some strange reason there seems to be one hundred moons in one hundred bowls of water.”- Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Tibetan Meditation Master

Over 500 people attended The 6th Annual 100 Bowls of Compassion event and raised $265,000 to support Miriam’s Kitchen’s programming. The night’s festivities included gourmet food, live music, live and silent auctions, and an open bar. The beautiful National Building Museum was the perfect backdrop to this elegant event that was staffed by Miriam’s Kitchen volunteers. More than 50 talented potters from around the world contributed a wide range of beautiful bowls, platters, and vases for last year’s auction. Also, dozens of individuals and businesses donated gifts and services for the live auction.
